V/A - Wein, Weib und Gesang [kpu072]

by V/A

Published
Topics Ambient


Our largest and most ambitious release to date, "Wein, Weib und Gesang" is a focus on experimental and ambient-styled electronics, with tracks from a group of some of the most remarkable musicians around. Some of these faces are new to Kikapu, while some have previously released here a number of times.

The title is an old German saying that is loosely translated as "wine, women and songs...all you need to be happy in life." Seeing as this release clocks in at nearly five hours in length, these songs represent a collective attempt to help you, the listener, be happy in life.

Matt Borghi was kind enough to supply the artwork for this release, and he has also put together a .pdf file that can be printed out and then constructed into a cd sleeve in which you can house an MP3-cd of this release if you so desire. Click below to download this cd sleeve.

Special thanks go out to the artists for their participation in this project and the wonderful tracks they have provided, and finally this release is a big thank you to all of our visitors who have helped us become successful over the past couple of years. We hope you enjoy.

Another beautiful kikapu release. It definately lives up to my expectations of such an ambitious release! beautiful music. And enough of it to keep me chilled for quite a while! :)

very nice!

Wine, women and song indeed. The coherency of this release and the arrangement of the compilation are done extremely well. The nuances of the artists is revealed while maintaining an uninterrupted trip. I'm not genre savvy, but this ambient trip provides some great closed eye-lid visuals that carry you through a soundscape that seem strangely familiar. Some of the transitions obviously lead to new spaces, neighborhoods and hills, but the whole is quite discernable when gazing in the directions you have come from and onward to those you are about to take.

Well done, I'm quite pleased.

i promise to review/edit this later, but i wanted to respond to the last reviewer. i think he missed the notion of mp3-CDS, which most newer (past 3 years) cd players and even dvd players support nowadays. it'll fit on 1 cd this way. besides.. that comment is less a review and more something that could've been posted @ the forum or email. i was lookin to read some real comments! tease.

Subject: nice idea for the cover but
isn't it a bit hard to put more than 4 hours of music on 1, or 2 cd's and fit them in the do it yourself sleeve?
just a thought.
